In 2009 Atlantis Submarines was the first attraction in the world to achieve double certification from "Green Globe and Green Certifications" in recognition of our active efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and "Go Green".
Green Certification website reads "Congratulations to Roseanne Myers and her team for successfully reaching the Green Certification in alliance with Green Globe Int. Atlantis Submarines Barbados is the first to have reached the new combined award in the Caribbean. The Green Globe Award is the only certification recognized by tour operators worldwide."
Roseanne Myers General Manager for Atlantis submarines Barbados says, "This is a fantastic achievement for us and it signals that we have started down a positive path to measuring and eventually reducing our carbon footprint as well as increasing our overall positive impact on the social and natural environment. We already had a number of safety, quality, preventative maintenance, programs in place but we did not realize that the Green certification would include an assessment of these as well environmental education and management systems. Most of all it was paperless and painless though we have lots more work to do!"
The management of Atlantis submarines Barbados seized the opportunity with the slowdown in business due to the economic crisis to make good use of this unusual gift of time and it has certainly paid off. A number of areas where we can improve our environmental responsibility and save money have been identified. There is the added benefit because Atlantis Submarines Barbados is now part of the Green Certifications Inc. ⁄ Green Globe Int. team and will be included on all of their websites, appropriate press releases, trade show, collateral, mail or e-mail to the travel trade, consumers, general public, corporations and meeting and incentive planners.
Atlantis Submarines in Barbados is an authentic submarine which is part of the largest fleet of recreational submarines in the world and daily takes guests to depths of 130 feet and deeper to explore the natural reef off the west coast of Barbados.
